Genghis Khan was born in Dadal near to the Siberian border in the north east corner of Mongolia. This is a beautiful area of mountains, forest, lakes and wide rivers. It is also of immense historical significance and we will visit the places where Genghis Khan lived until he became leader of his people and moved his capital to Kharkhorin in Central Mongolia.

The first and last days of the trip are on a good new black topped road, but for the rest of the tour we follow rough jeep tracks on packed mud or rock. There may be some river crossings (depends on recent weather conditions), although we travel out of our way to find bridges to cross the big rivers. All nights on tour are spent in the wild, camping in tents.

    Just a word to tell you I had a great time In Mongolia. Your team is great, so are the bikes. I will recommend your tour to my bikers friends and maybe try the Gobi one in a few years.
    Thank you for everything.

Itinerary

Day 1
    
Arrive Ulaanbaatar and transfer to hotel. Evening meet crew and allocate motorbikes.
    
Day 2
    
Set off eastwards towards Khentii Province. Leave the main black topped road before the village of Tsenkhermandal and ride over the mountains to arrive at the small Khukh Nuur.
    
Day 3
    
Ride on rough jeep tracks through silver birch forest and open rocky hilltops to arrive at Baldan Baraivan Hid, which used to be one of the most important Buddhist monasteries in the country before being destroyed by Communists. Continue on to Binder district to an ancient Kingís graveyard in the mountains.
    
Day 4
    
Not far from our campsite are some bronze-age rock paintings which we stop to see before riding on to Bayan Adraga village beside the wide Onon river. We cross this river later near the entrance to Onon-Balj National Park where there is a good bridge.
    
Day 5
    
Ride north a short distance to Dadal village where Genghis Khan was born in 1162. Where his motherís ger once stood there is now a small lake, and we can drink from a spring nearby, the water from which the great man himself must surely have tasted. Drive to Norovliin district to camp.
    
Day 6
    
Drive across the fertile open hills of Batnorov district and through the village to reach Underkhan, the capital of Khentii province located beside the Kherlen river. Overnight camping on a mountainside outside the town.
